Compared to conventional ladders, shelf ladders have large flat treads which makes them much safer and more comfortable to use than ordinary extension ladders.
The leaning bookcase has become commonplace in many homes seeking that modern feel. Quite simply, it is just a bookcase but with a distinct crick in its design that almost looks like a ladder. Almost like the ladder found in libraries of old but instead used to shelve books. The leaning bookcase is usually secured directly to the wall and is set up to make the most of limited shelf space.
If you have the space, you might want to consider buying 2 identical ladders. You can buy long planks of wood for the shelves, and create a whole system. To really add flair, have the ends of the planks extend past the ladders on both ends. Have the planks cut so that the bottom plank is the longest, and then shorter and shorter. The end effect will look like a huge ladder!
